    Shaun, what if your eyebrows are very thin and sparse from over-tweezing? Can you get a natural look with this pencil?

  • Shaun
    Shaun – Special Guest
    9/1/2015 12:41 PM

    @Irene Yes. Tonya made the lead harder than what is currently available on the market and has the built in sharpener cap for a strategic reason. With a harder lead that is constantly point perfectly sharpened, you get a more natural looking brow because the pencil actually emulates hair like strokes. Use light pressure when applying.

    @Mike I wanted to let everyone know that the highlighter pencil is a great multi-purpose tool. Customers use it not only under their brows to make their arch really stand out, but also to cover up dark circles under the eyes, fine lines around the face etc. Almost like a contour pen. There are two sides - a shimmer and a matte.

  • Shaun
    Shaun – Special Guest
    9/1/2015 1:12 PM

    @Geraldine Hi Geraldine. If you want to cover the gray and keep your brows darker (which is definitely the "in" look at the moment) then I would recommend the Espresso (#2) if they are dark brown and if you wanted a little lighter but still to cover any gray the medium brown (#4) It will definitely do the job of covering up the unwanted color. If you use the highlighter underneath your arch it will make your brows pop/standout. The gel is also waterproof so will keep your brows set with the pencil fill all day to keep out that gray color.

  • Phyllis

    @Mike Actually that is a bit of a fashion choice so it was not an oversight. It's not for everyone but young women often "go" for that look. I just asked one of the people at Grommet if she would sport that look and she said, "I grew up with a mother who would never allow that." But her mother's name is Janet so you have a soul sister Katrina.

    I am 70 yrs old and have lots of white and gray hairs growing in. I have light-medium brown hair with light blonde heavily dyed highlights over color. I have been using a soft brown color on my eyebrows. Your blonde looks too light, taupe too gray, medium brown too dark, and the chocolate too red. What are your suggestions?

  • Shaun
    Shaun – Special Guest
    9/1/2015 1:36 PM

    @Carolyn The medium brown would likely work perfectly for you. The color swatch can be a little deceiving but this is our color for light brown hair. The beauty of the harder lead and having it constantly sharp is you can get the best color for your brows by changing up the amount of pressure you apply when filling in. To go for a lighter brown we would suggest the medium brown #4 pencil and don't use too much pressure when filling your brows in. You will still get the payoff but not too dark.

  • Shaun
    Shaun – Special Guest
    9/1/2015 1:44 PM

    @Roseanne Hi Roseanne. We hear this issue a lot. I would also suggest the #5 Taupe pencil for you. We really believe if you fill in your brows with our method, you will really see a difference. We get lots of clients who have very sparse brows. In the videos above we have a guide to filling them in properly with Tonya's method. You will see with this pencil your brows won't look "painted on" as some product out there is too creamy and doesn't emulate natural hair.

    We can also suggest a brow enhancement serum. There are several on the market but we are also launching one in 2 weeks that bring life back to your brows in as little as 3 weeks.

    I have read that very dark eyebrows make you look older (I'm older) and the suggestion was to make your eyebrows slighter lighter than you hair color. I have black hair. Is there any truth to this at all?

  • Shaun
    Shaun – Special Guest
    9/1/2015 1:52 PM

    @Armi What we suggest is to match your brow color to your hair color as best as possible. This is why it took Tonya years to hand mix these colors that she thought would fit best to all the different hair colors out there. If you have lighter hair then it is often ok to go darker with your brows. We would suggest the #1 black pencil if you have black hair. This is one of the only 'Soft Black" pencils on the market. When you fill in, use light pressure and the pencil will go on a bit lighter and not too dark.

  • Kate
    Kate
    9/1/2015 2:03 PM

    @Armi Stick with the darker color for your eyebrows, and use just a light touch of blush high on your cheeks. You'll look younger.

    While my hair is mostly white, I use brow and eyelash color that goes with my redhead complexion, and some of my hair still. With all the beautiful redheads out there, I find it disappointing that in this product, we are all ignored. There is a make-up company that remembers redheads, and we can take care of our eyebrows with their products.

  • Shaun

    9/1/2015 2:14 PM

    @Marianne Hi Marianne. I am a natural redhead so I completely understand where you are coming with. Tonya has been designing a proper pencil color for redheads for the last year to get it just right as she was not happy with others on the market. By the end of the year we will have a choice for you. Thank you for your posts - we really appreciate it and hope the highlighters or gel work for you in the meantime.

  • Shaun
    Shaun – Special Guest
    9/1/2015 2:32 PM

    @Tammi Hi Tammi, Unfortunately it does take some time to get your brows to match your perfect face shape. We do hold Skype classes where we do consultations over video to help customers out. Let me find out when our next one is. A lot of people choose a stencil for a "quick fix" but we don't believe in this as having 3 stencils that are supposed to fit every brow shape out there is like saying there are only three foundations to match every squinting out there.

    If you watch the tutorials above on "how to shape" this will give you some guidance and then I can answer any questions you have about any of the steps.

I believe it was Kate who said it best somewhere on here, you are getting what you pay for and in this case it is high-quality eyebrow products. I'm sure Shaun and the rest of the team are gearing up for the holidays as their products are certainly going to (pun intended) raise shoppers' eyebrows.

  • Jules

    @Elizabeth Yes it is less about movement than setting the pencil. Basically to preserve your work fresh all day. I use it some days and not others but it is worth the extra step when I do.

The BrowGal

Eyebrow Makeup

Celebrity Brows

Well-groomed eyebrows can make a huge difference in framing your face. With BrowGal’s eyebrow maintenance pencil, highlighter, and gel, you can have perfect brows every day.

Founder Tonya Crooks has been a stylist to the stars for more than 12 years, earning her the nickname “The Brow Gal.” Her grooming tools and makeup let
anyone have celebrity-perfect eyebrows.

The Skinny Pencils are a three-in-one tool—pencil, spoolie brush, and one-turn sharpener. Made with cedar wood and a stiff lead, the pencil puts on natural-looking strokes that look like hair. The built-in sharpener gives a fine point in a few twists. Then the spoolie brush blends color and minimizes buildup.

Use the Highlighter Pencil to bring those brows to life. The matte side covers imperfections and hair regrowth. And the shimmer side accents your brow shape and makes them look fuller.

To finish off your look, the Eyebrow Gel keeps your work in place all day—it’s water- and sweat-resistant. One coat for light hold, two for medium, and three for “you’re gonna go swimming and nothing’s going to move” hold, as Tonya says.

Celebrity status not necessary—no matter who you are, you can always rock your eyebrows.

With a harder lead that is constantly point perfectly sharpened, you get a more natural looking brow because the pencil actually emulates hair like strokes. Use light pressure when applying.

    @Alana Hi Alana. Right now the best color would be the Chocolate or #3 pencil. I am a redhead and that is what I would use. The #1 highlighter is best as well for your hair color and skin tone.

    Hi Shaun. I have strawberry blond/red hair. I always have problems with selecting a color, as most people suggest a brown eyebrow pencil. It looks totally off. Is there somewhere I can see the color options clearer?

    Thanks, Jan

    @Mike I wanted to let everyone know that the highlighter pencil is a great multi-purpose tool. Customers use it not only under their brows to make their arch really stand out, but also to cover up dark circles under the eyes, fine lines around the face etc. Almost like a contour pen. There are two sides - a shimmer and a matte.

  • Shaun
    Shaun – Special Guest
    9/1/2015 1:12 PM

    @Geraldine Hi Geraldine. If you want to cover the gray and keep your brows darker (which is definitely the "in" look at the moment) then I would recommend the Espresso (#2) if they are dark brown and if you wanted a little lighter but still to cover any gray the medium brown (#4) It will definitely do the job of covering up the unwanted color. If you use the highlighter underneath your arch it will make your brows pop/standout. The gel is also waterproof so will keep your brows set with the pencil fill all day to keep out that gray color.

    @Mike Actually that is a bit of a fashion choice so it was not an oversight. It's not for everyone but young women often "go" for that look. I just asked one of the people at Grommet if she would sport that look and she said, "I grew up with a mother who would never allow that." But her mother's name is Janet so you have a soul sister Katrina.

    I am 70 yrs old and have lots of white and gray hairs growing in. I have light-medium brown hair with light blonde heavily dyed highlights over color. I have been using a soft brown color on my eyebrows. Your blonde looks too light, taupe too gray, medium brown too dark, and the chocolate too red. What are your suggestions?

  • Shaun
    Shaun – Special Guest
    9/1/2015 1:36 PM

    @Carolyn The medium brown would likely work perfectly for you. The color swatch can be a little deceiving but this is our color for light brown hair. The beauty of the harder lead and having it constantly sharp is you can get the best color for your brows by changing up the amount of pressure you apply when filling in. To go for a lighter brown we would suggest the medium brown #4 pencil and don't use too much pressure when filling your brows in. You will still get the payoff but not too dark.

  • Shaun
    Shaun – Special Guest
    9/1/2015 1:44 PM

    @Roseanne Hi Roseanne. We hear this issue a lot. I would also suggest the #5 Taupe pencil for you. We really believe if you fill in your brows with our method, you will really see a difference. We get lots of clients who have very sparse brows. In the videos above we have a guide to filling them in properly with Tonya's method. You will see with this pencil your brows won't look "painted on" as some product out there is too creamy and doesn't emulate natural hair.

    We can also suggest a brow enhancement serum. There are several on the market but we are also launching one in 2 weeks that bring life back to your brows in as little as 3 weeks.

    I have read that very dark eyebrows make you look older (I'm older) and the suggestion was to make your eyebrows slighter lighter than you hair color. I have black hair. Is there any truth to this at all?

  • Shaun
    Shaun – Special Guest
    9/1/2015 1:52 PM

    @Armi What we suggest is to match your brow color to your hair color as best as possible. This is why it took Tonya years to hand mix these colors that she thought would fit best to all the different hair colors out there. If you have lighter hair then it is often ok to go darker with your brows. We would suggest the #1 black pencil if you have black hair. This is one of the only 'Soft Black" pencils on the market. When you fill in, use light pressure and the pencil will go on a bit lighter and not too dark.

  • Kate

    @Armi Stick with the darker color for your eyebrows, and use just a light touch of blush high on your cheeks. You'll look younger.

    While my hair is mostly white, I use brow and eyelash color that goes with my redhead complexion, and some of my hair still. With all the beautiful redheads out there, I find it disappointing that in this product, we are all ignored. There is a make-up company that remembers redheads, and we can take care of our eyebrows with their products.

    @Marianne Hi Marianne. I am a natural redhead so I completely understand where you are coming with. Tonya has been designing a proper pencil color for redheads for the last year to get it just right as she was not happy with others on the market. By the end of the year we will have a choice for you. Thank you for your posts - we really appreciate it and hope the highlighters or gel work for you in the meantime.

  • Shaun
    Shaun – Special Guest
    9/1/2015 2:32 PM

    @Tammi Hi Tammi, Unfortunately it does take some time to get your brows to match your perfect face shape. We do hold Skype classes where we do consultations over video to help customers out. Let me find out when our next one is. A lot of people choose a stencil for a "quick fix" but we don't believe in this as having 3 stencils that are supposed to fit every brow shape out there is like saying there are only three foundations to match every squinting out there.

    If you watch the tutorials above on "how to shape" this will give you some guidance and then I can answer any questions you have about any of the steps.

    Hi Judy, we understand this may be out of the budget for some and we don't want you breaking the bank, but, as mentioned above, The BrowGal is fairly in line with other quality cosmetic products. I believe it was Kate who said it best somewhere on here, you are getting what you pay for and in this case it is high-quality eyebrow products. I'm sure Shaun and the rest of the team are gearing up for the holidays as their products are certainly going to (pun intended) raise shoppers' eyebrows.

    @Elizabeth Yes it is less about movement than setting the pencil. Basically to preserve your work fresh all day. I use it some days and not others but it is worth the extra step when I do.
